Meet seven-year-old Polina from
A grenade killed her grandmother, her uncle and a neighbour. Polina and her parents received serious shrapnel wounds.
“She had a cardiac arrest,” recalls her mother, Svitlana. “She learned to walk again. She suffered deep wounds on both legs. But she remained alive – this is the most important.”
